Barcelona ace Messi: I gave Ibrahimovic penalty to end slump

Barcelona hat-trick hero Lionel Messi was happy to hand penalty duties to Zlatan Ibrahimovic last night.

Ibrahimovic converted his spotkick in Barca's 4-2 victory over Real Zaragoza.

"I left the penalty to Ibra because he needed to score to break his slump," shrugged Messi. "It was important for him and also for the team to see him scoring again."
